Cinnamon Zucchini Muffins

Anyone else struggle with healthy breakfast options while traveling?  Clean food options barely exist at the airport to begin with and then add in gluten and dairy restrictions and you have a whole lot of nothing to eat!  I came up with this muffin recipe as a solution to this problem.  These babies are not only grain and added sugar free, they also power in a dose of veggies, healthy fats and fiber!  I’ll bring two of these with some collagen powder to throw in my green tea and my travel breakfast is served! PSA due to amazing smell you will want to eat the batter (please don’t) raw; also will make your kitchen smell fabulous!
